the wonderful knitting of Susan Smith

Does the name Susan Smith ring a bell? We've mentioned her once or twice before. Why? Because she's an absolutely genius knitter. What this woman can't knit, we just don't know (and nor do we want to know about it). Here she is with a Florence Nightingale smoothie cover.


Her needlework first caught our attention with the Unicorn big knit hat last year, along with a little Robin and a kicking-heeled Santa. This year she sent us some absolute gems, including this one of Mary, Joseph, and a tiny Baby Jesus.


Susan popped by the towers for tea and cake last week, and happened to bring along some of her other knitting work. We were amazed, and just had to share some of them with you. Such as her garden gnomes.


Finger puppets of Sooty and Sweep.


And a caveman, cavewoman, and their pet monster.


A big thank you to Susan for brightening up our Friday afternoon, and showing us how much more there is to knitting than we'd ever imagined.
